Subdivision 1: Georgia Bonora
She's in the "sparkly pink" leotard.
Bonora (AUS) VT: FTY (hop).
Georgia Bonora AUS opened on vault--Yurchenko full with the usual rebound on the landing--5.0/8.5/13.4 yes the now normal new middle line deduction of .1
Scores seem quite low thus far in this session. COULD Lauren be met with 'later subdivision score boosting', the likes of which we've seen in Worlds and Olympics past?
UB comaneci, clear hip to undershoot, open legs on giants, double front with big step forward and squat landing. Score 12.9.
BB wolf jump, switch leap - back tuck, free aerial, flic – layout, onodi, side somi (wobble), free cartwheel, ro – double pike off (low chest and step fwd).13.25
She's 6th overall after 3 rotations.
FX full in (oob landed, chest low), double back (hop), triple spin, 1 ½ through 2/1 (landed oob), double pike dismount.
Bonora AUS on Floor--Full in mount but stepped out of the area, tuck double, 2 3/4 flat foot turn, 1 1/2 step out to full out of the area, double pike landed low and stepped forward. 5.2-7.225/.6 neutral--11.825
Might've been the ankles playing up? Or something? She's now 7th AA after that subdivision. I just want to go give her a hug! It's like Dasha in Beijing all over again!
Buck up, GBo! You did your best!
Subdivision 2: Shona Morgan, Larrissa Miller
Morgan (AUS) BB split jump –wolf jump, free aerial – flic – layout, switch leap – rulfova, ½ split leap (fall), switch ring leap, side aerial (fall), side somi, ro – double pike off (step back). 11.025
I jinxed it, didn't I.
I disappeared for TEN MINUTES and this happens. Poor Shona.
Morgan VT during warm up she landed very short her BAITOVA and injured herself, she is still on the floor trying to get up, her knee is in pain and she is crying.
She was stretchered out after being seen to by a huddle of medics.
Oh, I do hope she's ok. CAN YOU HEAR ME FROM WHERE YOU ARE SHONA? WE LOVE YOU, GET BETTER SOON!!!!
I hope Larrissa and Lauren don't get rattled by this. They deserve to go on and do well for Shona as well as themselves. Sorry to get all Remember The Titans on you. This was NOT the Worlds any of us were hoping for! Oh this is awful so far. I know I always say "don't sound the death knell" but yeesh, at the rate we're going, Lauren could be hit by lightning just walking into the arena when the time comes.
Please gymgods, let the world right itself again and let the Aussies have some redemption.
Ok, can't dwell on the bad stuff.
It's Larrissa's time to shine!
Holy crap, IG says
Sorry we missed Larrissa Miller on Bars where she scored 6.1-8.55--14.65 which is the highest score there so far!!!!
stalder 1/1 – Gienger, undershoot, good lines, stalder ½ - Jaeger, full in (stuck). Good.
